Worked on another image - version of the first web image I painted and then manipulated for painting - I worked today with the manipulation. Used oil pastels again and was able to incorporate the oils with sections of the photographs. Used metallic pastels so the end result is kind of bright - not sure if the word brilliant is appropriate since it implies brilliance on my part.
I like how it is going - a good start to spring. Here is the image, before being manipulated.
More snow melted - warmth and energy is in the air.
